The MTN Ghana Foundation was established in 2007 as a single purpose vehicle to drive all MTN’s CSR initiatives in the country. The Foundation currently has three focus areas – Health, Education and Economic Empowerment. The Foundation is set up as a separate legal entity with its own independent Board of Directors and Patrons who oversee the operations of the Foundation. Its commitment is centred around the socio-economic development of the country through the roll-out of appropriate and sustainable social interventions in communities all over the country.
The main aim of the Foundation is to have a broad community impacting and supporting national and international development priorities. It facilitates partnership and sharing of resources to achieve mutual objectives.

To improve the quality of lives of people through appropriate and sustainable corporate social responsibility interventions in communities where MTN operates.
Funding for Foundation
MTN’s global policy is to have a proportion of each operating unit’s profit after tax dedicated to undertaking corporate social responsibility activities. These funds are what the Foundation uses for its projects.
